Happy Birthday Debian

Debian turns 19 today.

Happy Birthday Debian !!!

I had a great time using you and have learned much about Linux in that time.
I want to thank the developers and the community for making Debian the way it is and hope that there will be at least another 19 great years for Debian.

Debian is the great seminal OS and has remained a worthy system in its own right.
I've found the community to be about 50/50; there are the Debian elite who can't even get along amongst themselves; then there are those who are helpful, patient, and know how to kindly direct a new user to the man pages or documentation.

Happy birthday, Debian!

19 years already?!

Anyway, happy birthday to my favorite distro! I've learned a lot by using it as well (and I've found it's the most suitable distro for my needs).

It goes to show the depth of feeling of the overall Debian community that it is still going strong after 19 years. Well done to all those involved past and present for producing such an excellent and usuable system
